Managing a team of employees, as in the highly aspiring Indian work environment, is a challenge. Any one wanting to achieve excellence in this requires to focus on these three
key aspects:
  • 1)
  • Setting challenging goals that will shape the team’s progress and success
  • 2)
  • Coaching employees by obtaining and providing relevant feedback
  • 3)
  • Building mutual trust through open and direct communication

    Setting challenging goals that will shape the team’s progress and success
    Managers that can lead their teams to consistently beat commitments gain a lot of credibility and high degree of success in their career. There are three possible outcomes for each commitment made by the manager and the team – missing, meeting, or beating it. The first outcome is a path to failure, second is a path to coast in one’s career, but the third is a clear path to attract every one’s attention and move significantly forward in one’s career. I always set a goal for myself to beat commitments and expectations consistently, and this has helped me grow well in my career so far. Result orientation being one of most organizations’ values, there is ample opportunity and apposite environment in this regard; this could be an excellent ground for career development.
